The B & B is really well located close to the beach, and the hosts are very friendly. Our room was spacious and comfortable although a little worn around the edges and we could hear our neighbours when they came home late at night. Veggie Breakfast was great. Probably overall a little on the expensive side for swanage.

We have just returned from another fantastic stay at the Tower Lodge Hotel and, once again, were not disappointed. This was our 7th week long stay in 8 years ( we have also had the odd weekend stop over as well) and John and Domenica are great hosts, friendly and welcoming. Very comfortable beds and impeccably clean rooms we love... More

The perfect family place to stay. John and Domenica are warm & welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is clean & extremely comfortable, the breakfast is delicious & plentiful, with a variety of fruit, cereals and full breakfast.

Would like to say that we have used tower lodge for many years for our A level students.Domenica and John are used to taking school groups and have learned to live with teenagers and accept their fussiness/oddities and occasional unreasonable demands.As parents of teenagers themselves they understand the students but are also willing to apply positive behaviour management if necessary.The...

Me and my cousin visited our family, who were on holiday in swanage, for two nights on 9th and 10th of August and was so happy we stayed at Tower Lodge. The rooms were clean, spacious and beds were very comfy! Breakfast was great and the owners are lovely and make you feel very welcome and comfortable. Would recommend Tower... More

Well located guest house a short walk to the town centre. Comfortable rooms. Impeccable clean, good breakfast. Owners very helpful and accommodating, allowing use of the car park after we had checked out. Reasonably priced. Would use again.

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Tower Lodge. We found it to be impeccably clean, the owners friendly and very accommodating. The room was light and airy and whilst the hotel's location is adjacent to a road into Swanage the traffic noise was negligible.

This is a perfectly satisfactory seaside boarding house, but with pretensions to be something else and prices to match. The place was impeccably clean, there was a large lounge, and the breakfast was wholesome and generous (fresh fruit salad a real bonus, and I enjoyed the kippers option). The proprietors cooked and served breakfast themselves but otherwise were off the... More

We have just enjoyed a three night break in Swanage and stayed at the Tower Lodge . Can I just add at this point that I would usually allow myself to be guided by ETC/RAC/AA awards when electing to book accommodation as a result of viewing a web site. On this occasion as we were wanting to get away mid... More
